    Default Dark line on stomach post baby

    Hi ladies,

    Just wondering how long it takes for the dark line that runs vertical down ur belly when pregnant to fade. I had my DS 4 weeks ago & it's still very dark.

    Default Dark line on stomach post baby

    Oh ok damn I was hoping it was only going to be 2 months or so but sounds like a bit longer. Mine is so dark it's embarrassing :-(

    Default Dark line on stomach post baby

    I had a very dark one after birth and it faded just a little bit by 3 mnths at which point i decided to start putting cream/oil on it and see if it makes a difference, its now been 4,5 months post birth and its barely there! Still there but very light i reckon moisturising helped

    Mine must have gone between 10-12 months.

    Mine took about a year to disappear.

    I didn't get an obvious one with my second.
